Scott Catalog News by Charles Snee

Another month has passed, and that means it’s time to reveal another batch of new Scott catalog numbers.

The editors of the Scott catalogs each month assign catalog numbers to new issues from the United States, United Nations and postal services from around the world.

The new Scott numbers provided here are for recently issued U.S. stamps. New Scott numbers for worldwide stamps are given in the Scott New Listings Update in Scott Stamp Monthly.

Included in this month’s listings are Scott numbers for the nondenominated (66¢) John Lewis stamp issued July 21 at Morehouse College in Atlanta and the nondenominated (66¢) Life Magnified stamps issued Aug. 10 in a pane of 20. Also Scott official are the five nondenominated (66¢) Thinking of You stamps issued Aug 11. Both the Life Magnified and Thinking of You stamps were issued at the Great American Stamp Show in Cleveland. Imperforate varieties of all of these stamps, which come from uncut press sheets without die cuts, were also assigned Scott numbers.

What do these Scott numbers signify? In short, each stamp’s listing in an upcoming edition of the 2024 Scott catalogs.

Having these numbers handy will allow you to easily locate these stamps in the Scott catalogs and learn about their production and values.

Now that you have some context, here are the new U.S. Scott numbers:
